Meanwhile scenes for another film - believed to be Avengers: Age of Ultron - are due to be filmed at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, on the University of East Anglia campus, on Friday.

A UEA spokesman confirmed that the Sainsbury Centre had been booked out until the end of Friday but said they were unable to comment further.

There are reports online of students being invited to audition last month for 'Afterparty,' which is thought to be the code name for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
